Why don't you just tell us the war didn't cost us a dime, Mr President?

Outrageous news on the Iraq war cost report that the Democrats recently published but the Republicans deemed as "incorrect" and demanded the Democrats to retract...

Doesn't it sound like those fights they put in soaps where the husband and wife are pointing fingers at each other yelling about how much they have overspent that month?

Wish it was really as simple as soaps where people watch and then forget....but... we are talking about WAR here... A war that killed millions of lives...... (sigh).......

Some outrageous figures from the report

".... The 'hidden costs' (of the war) had pushed the total to about $1.5 trillion - nearly twice the requested $804 bn...."

"... Higher oil prices, the cost of care for wounded veterans and the economic cost of pulling reservists from their jobs were taken into account in reaching the new total...."

"... The Democratic authors of the War report calculate that between 2002 and 2008 the campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan will have cost the average US family of four about $20,900...."

"... The war could cost a total of $3.5 trillion over the next decade...."

"Democratic Senator Charles Schumer, chairman of the JEC, said: "What this report makes crystal clear is that the cost to our country in lives lost and dollars spent is tragically unacceptable."

George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, you are such a Jackaxx, u know that??!?!?!
